Default Multiple Level Counters?

I was wondering if it is legal to use both the iPhone app and a physical level counter to get both bonuses?

No. One level counter per player.

You get a bonus from a physical level counter?

You do if you're using a level counter that gives you a bonus.

Related Question: If we're playing a version with a board/playmat (where no bonus is given) - we can still use the phone app for a bonus, right?

Bonus or no bonus, a mat that tracks Level is a Level Counter, so I don't allow people to use the Level Counter app (which is on Android as well, by the way) when I'm using a mat, unless Andrew can provide a compelling reason to dissuade me from that practice.

Well, one consideration might be that Munchkin Deluxe comes with a Level Tracking board, which one would presume the players would be using, yet still has a box on Page 4 of its rules extolling the virtues of the app, with no mention that you can't use if it using the board that comes with the game...

I have no problem allowing people to use a level counter that gives a bonus if the group is using one that does not, but I think it's also important to point out that the group tracker is the official one, not the individual tracker.

What about the bonus counters for Level Playing Field/Board of Health? If everyone gets one, do they also get to use the app's bonus? Or do they get to choose one or the other?

The player must choose whether to use the bonus token provided with the board or the app. He cannot benefit from both in the same game.
